In depth

Verdict

Right To Rule ran his best race for some time when third at Newcastle four weeks ago and has a chance on that form. Blinkers would have to bring about a lot of improvement in Siksika but Icanmotor was only beaten a neck at Uttoxeter last month and Ruby Valentine likes it here. But she was well behind POLO SPRINGS at Stratford and Graeme McPherson's grey could hold on to go one better in this.
